* The (possibly apocryphal) story goes that when Abe Lincoln was a lawyer, a man came to his second floor office and offered him a bribe to throw his client's case. When Lincoln refused the man said "Everyone has his price." and raised the offer. This went on for a few moments as the man kept saying that "Everyone has his price" and making a larger offer. Suddenly, Lincoln grabbed the man and threw him down the stairs. When a stunned man asked why Lincoln didn't just refuse the latest offer, Lincoln says "He was getting too close to my price."

* Main/{{X-Men}} foe the Juggernaut is known and feared for being an unstoppable, invulnerable villain who crushes anything in his path. However, one surefire way to stop him (assuming he's working as a hired gun, and not pursuing a personal vendetta) is to offer him more cash than his current employer is offering.

* In ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', Sarine's preferred method of dealing with people with whom she needs something really fast with a minimum of fuss is to bribe them with LostTechnology that, as an elven ranger, is frequently just one of her personal belongings. After one instance, she notes that she's going to quickly run out of bribery material at her current rate.

* In the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, it's repeatedly noted that even the [[IncorruptiblePurePureness incorruptible Heralds]] can be bribed. It's just that [[EvilCannotComprehendGood the sort of person who would bribe a Herald wouldn't be the sort of person who could think of a bribe that would work]].

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'': Mr. Shimokawa (Marcy's boss) collects American classic "junk" and wants to add Al's car into the collection. Marcy will gain her so desired promotion if she persuades Al to sell it. (They can't get another car of that kind because half had been recalled and the other dissolved in rain) When Al finally agreed, Mr. Shimokawa commented he knew every man had his price. Al said every woman had it as well. Marcy had to make a sensual dance and Mr. Shimokawa offered the promotion because of how sexy she was. She then [[SubvertedTrope subverted the trope]] by beating her boss and calling it her resignation.
